Yoshimura Full exhaust + center stand=:(

So I found a full Yoshimura exhaust for sale on CL semi local and snatched it up. My question is I could not get the Yoshimura exhaust mounted with the center stand in place. Running out of daylight I called Yoshimura and they confirmed the center stand needs to be removed as stated in the instructions.

Pretty sure I have seen pics on here of Fz1's with a full Yoshi system while retaining the center stand, so what am I missing? Does it need to be removed just for the install of the Yoshi, then it can be re-installed? Christ even the instructions tell you to place the center stand rubber stop on the new Yoshi exhaust.

Remove the stand for the install and then reinstall the stand once the pipes are in place. Stand spring will rub on pipe but no biggie.

Well that sucks that the spring is going to rub, as I use the center stand most the time!

Same.

Dont worry about the spring. It makes contact only when fully deployed. Its "touching" not "rubbing".

A few folks have mentioned that you must leave all the springs off and the joints loose and twist the collector just a touch to get it to fit with the center stand.

Me I took a different approach. I cut the boss off of the clutch side centerstand mount where the stock exhaust mounted on that side, not clearance problems now!

The bike should be on the side stand when installing the Yosh pipe.

Centerstand spring will contact collector only when the stand is down.

I have full Yosh on mine with the centre stand. Works fine, except the rubber bumper on the muffler doesn't hit the stand in the right spot causing the centre stand to sit a bit higher than designed. Gives a cringe worthy bang when you take it off the stand as it hits the rear shock link.

I'm the only person I've heard with this issue so I assume mine wasn't made right or installed right.

The very early systems had that issue. ... you should contact them to exchange your midpipe.

I have that issue too. The dogbone gets chewed up a little because of it.

That's how I fitted mine. On the side stand, once fitted the center stand works fine, the spring just rubs the mid pipe when down.

Centre stand and kilometers. Hopefully all U.S. imports the same. The Yoshi online instructions say discard it , it wont be used.
